NY AG Investigate Facebook Over Minor Safety

Facebook is under the scrutiny of the New York Attorney General's Office for failure to implement safeguards for minor users of the site.  Office investigators posed as minor teenagers on the site.  They were solicited for sex and were able to access pornographic pictures and movies.  A Reuters report indicates that AG's office has sent subpoenas to Facebook as part of its investigation into safety practices.

More details are at CBS News, the New York Times, and Information Week.
